A booking system will operate when Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) reopen on Monday 4th May. 

HRCs will be open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 3.30pm and accept excess waste that would normally go into your black bin. 

Following a Council meeting held on Tuesday 12th May, cardboard and garden waste will now also be accepted.

Strict measures will be in place to ensure that social distancing rules are complied with.  Staff will control access to facilities and limit the number of vehicles on site at any one time.  In light of the temporary arrangements, householders are asked to be patient and respectful to site staff.  Any abusive behaviour towards staff will not be tolerated.

Householders will be required to offload their own waste to maintain social distancing.  Householders should continue to recycle/dispose of as much waste as possible in their bins at home, and if circumstances allow, store excess waste in a shed or garage.
